A - Pours a nice lighter gold color, 1 finger of fluffy white head, mild lacing.
S - More on the side of sweeter malt in aroma, and the you get some pine, and a nice mix of citrus and hint of tropical fruits.
T - Light caramel malt in front but not for long as it gets a good wave of bitter hop bite with some mango and pineapple. Finishes sweet.
M - Refreshing, and crisp fruit flavor, but still a little sticky sweet.
O - Big thanks to my uncle for bringing this here from NC when he visited last month, first time I had it it wasnt anything special, but now I've come to appreciate it: Its just a solid APA, The aroma could be a bit better, but it makes up with a nice balance of flavor. Refreshing, and good flavor.

Thanks to Rusel_G for the bottle.

Appearance: Hazed orangey gold. Head is white, super fluffy, with a dense creamy, bubbly head. Solid retention with some spots of lacing.

Smell: Leafy and grassy. Some herbal and citrus. Malts are lightly sweet, pushing some biscuit and caramel malt. Slightly toasted. Slightly earthy. Very mild. Pale malts. Some grapefruit mixed in there.

Taste: Bready and slightly toasted. Hops hit a rather wide spectrum with some earthy, citrus, and even floral notes. Slight grapefruit and caramel malt sweetness. Undercooked bread and a slight lingering bitterness. A bit of hop spiciness. Leafy and grassy at times. Nice clean fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean with a medium body and slightly above average carbonation.

Overall: Hey, I can drink this!

It's a straight up, no frills APA. Nothing to write home about, but drinkable overall.
